Scientists found closest known Black Hole to Earth

The recently found nearest Black Hole is 1600 light years away from the earth.

A light year is a large unit of length used to express astronomical distances and is equivalent to about 5.88 trillion miles. 

The Black Hole is identified by the Gaia Spacecraft.

And that is considered to be three times closer than the previous record holder Black Hole.

Astronomers believe the star that died to create the black hole would have lived for a few million years 

The newly found Black Hole is 10 times closer than Sun

It is dubbed as Gaia BH1.
